Title: Support Sjogren's World while shopping Amazon
Post by: Bucky on October 10, 2013, 02:50:51 PM
Hello everyone. Since we've had a bunch of newbies recently - and as a reminder to everyone else, if you are doing any shopping on-line through Amazon.com, if you would like to help out Sjogren's World at the same time - you can follow the links from our homepage to Amazon and a portion of your purchase will further the work here on this site.    ;D  Sjogren's World does not require "dues" for it's members.  Any of the monies Sjogren's World receives from Amazon.com sales is put right back into the bills associated with the upkeep of our site.  (All of the staff here are volunteers - so, no monies are used to cover payroll expenses.)

The holidays will be fast approaching and what better way to get your shopping done than from the convenience of your own home, with delivery right to your door versus battling traffic, crowds, parking spaces, walking, etc.  (Think of the spoons we'll save!!)

If you are unable to sleep at 3 a.m. . . . go shopping!   ;)  Amazon is open 24/7.

Use this handy link to search for books, magazines, small appliances, movies, downloads for your Kindles, gifts and other items and help Sjogren's World out a little bit at the same time.  Searching for that perfect gift and fresh out of ideas?  Purchase gift certificates at Amazon.com (with the link from our page), help us while you complete your holiday and/or day-to-day shopping list.

Here's the link to our Sjogren's World homepage.  Scroll to the bottom of the page and there is the Amazon box/link you can use.    http://www.sjogrensworld.org

You may also support us with tax-deductible donations.

I sure didn't know that. I checked the Home Page and found nothing about Amazon.

??

Don't hide it! I'm on another board that offers this and the link to Amazon is visible with each and every visit to the discussion board. Very easy to find.

Jazzlover - you have to scroll to the bottom of the page and there is information about Amazon.  The link is also on our "Useful Links" board.

Thanks for reminding us all, Bucky! Even I have ordered and not gone through our link-oops  :P

Linda, I think with the sticky icon there at the bottom of the page, we will all be able to find the link much easier.

Don't forget with all your holiday shopping that you do online w/Amazon to use the link from our site. The percentage of money we get goes right back into our website so the members can continue to come here and find helpful information, support and friendship on their Sjogren's journey.

Thank you for helping to support us as you do your Amazon shopping.

I do most of my shopping on Amazon. A week ago I found the link to AMazon that will be at the bottom of this post. I clicked on it, and whenever I go online to Amazon it pops up with an indicator that I am using the AmazonSMILES program to donate a percentage (don't know how much) of my spending to the Sjögren's Syndrome Foundation.

Thanks to Bucky, forum staff, and Amazon, for make one thing in our lives *so* much easier!

Thank you, soycoffee, we appreciate any monies that come in from members purchases through Amazon.

I've never seen the indicator that you mention when I've gone to Amazon through our site.

I do want to mention that our site, Sjogren's World is different from the Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation.  Both sites DO exist to help those people who have been affected by Sjogren's Syndrome - however, they are NOT one in the same.

In order for our site, Sjogren's World, to get a percentage of your purchases bought, you have to go through the link on our site.

With all the graduations, baby showers, wedding showers, weddings, etc. going on this time of year - perfect opportunity to buy gifts, gift cards, etc. via Amazon.   ;)

Thank you all so much for your continued support.

Thanks everyone who remembers Sjogren's World when shopping at Amazon (via the link from our home page) - every purchase helps with the expenses incurred for running this website.

Here's the link to our Sjogren's World homepage.  Scroll to the bottom of the page and there is the Amazon box/link you can use.    http://www.sjogrensworld.org

Just a quick reminder as it's "back to school" time - that if you are buying school clothes, backpacks, school supplies,  college books, college dorm supplies, etc., that shopping at Amazon is a great way to check items off your school list(s).

Before you know it, the holidays will be here too - no time like the present to start buying your presents from the comfort of your own home with no traffic, no lines, and shopping available 24/7 delivered right to your front door.   :D

Thank you for your support of Sjogren's World.

Hi everyone - just a quick reminder for those of you who do your shopping via Amazon, if you would go to Amazon via the link on our home page, (here's the link to our Sjogren's World homepage.  Scroll to the bottom of the page and there is the Amazon box/link you can use.    http://www.sjogrensworld.org ) - every purchase helps with the expenses incurred for running this website (all of the staff here are volunteers, so no monies are used for payroll expenses).

What better way to shop from the convenience and warmth of your own home 24/7 without the hassle of traffic, parking, weather, crowds, no lines, etc.  Plus, you can have the items delivered right to your front door.   :D

Thank you for your support of Sjogren's World.  (As a side note, Sjogren's World and the Sjogren's Foundation are not one in the same, so in order to support THIS forum, here at Sjogren's World, you need to use the Amazon link mentioned above from our website.)

I will have to remember this, since I love Amazon. I do try to not shop when I can't sleep, because that happens a lot and as a Virginia state employee I don't have the funds to purchase everything I want. If I did, I would have to live in one of the boxes they send my orders in! LOL! This is done on Amazon Smiles, yes?

Hi everyone - just bumping this thread up again as soon it will be "back to school" time for many and if you happen to shop Amazon, if you would remember to use the link here on our site, it will help put monies back into this Sjogren's World website that all of us can enjoy.

None of the volunteer staff that work here get paid - all the monies received go right back into the upkeep and operation of this website.

We don't have any type of fundraisers for this site, but we do accept monetary donations, if you so desire to help.

Thank you for remembering Sjogren's World through shopping Amazon via our link.   :D

Hello everyone - as 2017 is rapidly coming to a close - just bumping this thread back up as many of you are getting your holiday shopping started (or finished up - if you're really organized).  Since you will be shopping anyhow, why not help out Sjogren's World at the same time. 

As has been mentioned before, Sjogren's World does not charge any dues or membership fee to it's members for visiting this site and sharing in it's forum boards, live chat, and all the information contained here.  None of the staff is paid - we are all volunteers.  It does, however, cost money to keep this site up and running and that is where any donations or monies we receive from Amazon shopping help us out.

Just to clarify, Sjogren's World and the Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation are NOT one in the same.
